Christopher Baker‘s new show Hello World! is a large-scale audio visual installation comprised of thousands of video diaries gathered from the internet. Each of the 5,000 videos that make up Hello World! features a single individual speaking candidly to an imagined audience from a private space. The multi-channel sound composition glides between individuals and the group, allowing viewers to listen in on individual speakers or become immersed in the overall cacophony. Hello World! is on view through Febuary 28th 2012 at the Saatchi Screen, 73 Duke of York Square, King’s Road, London. Text and photo Grace Difford.
